Materials Recycled


Clayton State University is committed to being an environmentally conscious community by recycling and properly disposing of both universal and hazardous materials.

Paper, Aluminum and Plastics

In addition to practicing Single Stream Recycling (SSR) in designated employee spaces, recycling bins are also provided for paper, aluminum and plastics throughout common areas on campus. These bins are managed by Facilities Management.

Toner Cartridges

Clayton State recycles toner cartridges by returning the used cartridges to the vendor of purchase. Used cartridges are sent to the Facilities Management warehouse for processing.


Computers, monitors, and components are recycled through the State surplus process. The HUB must first be notified of any computers or components that need to be surplussed. Once scrubbed, the HUB will send the items to Facilities Management for further processing to State surplus.
